Hello! This is Ossie, Oswald if he's naughty ;-) . He is a 98 pound lab Great Dane mix, we think. He is super goofy and silly and loves to be by his human on the couch (upside down if you're lucky), playing with toys or playing tug with another big dog.
Ossie is pretty shy and can take awhile to warm up, but once he does, man its big love, huge love! Once comfortable, Ossie is a very loving giant baby dog that will make you laugh forever with his silly antics. He's so very special and needs that special human to be his! One of his funny quirks is that he likes to bring gifts of socks, toys, or sticks to his favorite person. He fetches once or twice but has determined that is enough exercise for the moment. He has been through obedience training at Liberty K9 in Barnum, MN and comes with a free refresher. He can crate himself if he can *see* the treat you are holding.
He is pretty young yet (under 2) and has no idea how big he is and loves to lay on laps and play with other dogs jumping around them so very awkwardly with his long daddy long leg legs. He just doesn't know where they go! He would be best with a very confident sturdy older big dog that also likes to play tug and no littles (he doesn't want to eat them, but he could possibly hurt them by stepping on them wrong). He does pretty good at keeping himself entertained if he is alone, but does take social cues from other dogs when it comes to people. A fenced in yard is a must for this boy to feel safe.
Oswald's adoption fee is $400 which covers his neuter, vaccinations, microchip and any additional medical care he may have needed while in the rescue’s care. We are a foster based rescue, we do not house dogs at a facility. Age and breed, are NLR's best guess as we often don't know who or what mom and dad are.
